To download Woof, you need to obtain the Bones version control system, written by Barry himself. If you don't have Bones (usually Puppy 4.3.1 and below), you'll have to install it manually.
To check whether you have Bones installed or not, simply open a console window.
Then, run the command “bones”. If the command is not found, it means that Bones is missing; you'll have to install it first.
To install Bones, go to the Quirky PET packages repository first.
Then, locate the latest Bones PET package. It is important that you carefully choose the latest version, as earlier versions may not work.
Download the PET package and install it.
mkdir woof-tree && cd woof-tree
Then, configure Bones to download Woof.
A dialog will appear: type something as the username and use “http://bkhome.org/bones/woof/” as the download URL.
Now, download Woof itself.
This will download Woof to the “woof-tree” directory.
